Product Code: 76SS220062


Bowler Hats first appeared in the mid 1800's, originally intended as a form of protective headwear for gamekeepers.

Adopted as a signature style of the British civil service yet loved worldwide for its classic look, the Bowler has now made a lasting impact in popular culture.

Since 1898 Bates hatters have had a presence on London's Jermyn Street and are renowned for combining traditional values and methods with a modern aesthtic.

This traditional round crown bowler is a prime example of the style and features a stylish curled brim with 25mm Petersham ribbon edging & plain, flat bow detail.

Size Guide

Follow these steps to discover the best fit for you.

1. Hold the end of flexible tape-measure (the end showing 0cm) to the centre of your forehead, approximately 2cm above your brow line.


2. Wrap the tape backwards around your head, making sure that it is wound straight and level and sits about 1cm above the ear.

*There is a bump on the back of the head. Ensure that the tape sits on this bump for the most accurate measurement


3. Bring tape back to your forehead (maintaining 1cm height above the opposite ear) and taking note of cm measurement where the tapes meet.

Use this centimetre measurement to determine correct size according to sizing  charts.




  • It is recommended that half-cm measurements step up to the next whole size i.e. 59.5cm would choose a size 60cm
  • Hat makers often follow different sizing metrics, so please refer to individual brand sizing charts for accurate conversion.
